We really enjoyed staying here however it is much more of a B&B experience than a hotel. We stayed in the Renee room which had a view of the garden and simply appointed. We had a great time and are looking forward to staying here again once the gazebo and fire pit are complete. If you have special needs or... More

Upon our afternoon arrival, there were homemade cookies in the foyer which were absolutely delicious. We stayed in the 1880's room which is on the first level and the room was very clean, neat, comfortable and we liked the decor. In addition to the bedroom area, there is a small sitting room to relax in and the bathroom had everything... More

We enjoyed learning the history of this house, and seeing the authentic antique furniture and décor. Playing the old pump organ in the parlor was a real treat, too! We were surprised and pleased to find homemade cookies waiting, and all kinds of snacks and treats plus makings for coffee and tea in our room. You know you're someplace special... More

The reason that I go to Seaside. I usually go to Lincoln City, but the Gilbert Inn is the reason . It is one of those places that you want to keep a secret because it is a special spot. If you are looking for modern and fancy... this is not it. If you are looking for historic, and a... More

Service was prompt and professional. An example would be the speed with which they responded to a clogged toilet. Also, staff went the "extra mile" to accommodate powering up computer with outlet interface (3-into-2 wall outlet plug.) Room was comfortable and cleanliness was excellent. Appearance was very nice. Location was outstanding with Seaside's promenade being less than a block away.... More

We have been coming here for years and absolutely love it...It's clean and quiet and close to everything. We come every year on our anniversary...last year was our 51st and we also enjoy the Wheels and Waves car show at the same time.

The owners, the rustic seaside décor and welcoming environment are amazing. The Inn has been beautifully restored and the rooms have private baths. Love the wood walls and ceilings in the common rooms, close to beach and parking.

We spent a weekend at the Gilbert Inn in Seaside and thoroughly enjoyed it! We had a ground floor room, and although it was near the side entrance, we scarcely heard anything, nor did we hear any real street noise. It was late April, though, so summer crowds at this beach-loving destination might change this. The Inn is located just... More

Just a down right great place to stay. Loved the history of the Inn! Within walking distance of anything you'd like to do in Seaside. Clean rooms as we as a great sun room to set in for coffee or visiting. Looking forward to our stay in 2015

While traveling I booked a stay at The Gilbert Inn as a respite from the "hotel" scene. I was astonished by the ambiance, the decor, and the old-style care given to this wonderful landmark. My one night stay was too short. My wife and I will return for a longer stay very soon.
